I have four spare tickets to the National Car Races weekend in a week's time...  the weekend will feature Classic Touring Car Racing, Kumho BMW, VSCC Pre War Sports Cars, Citroen 2CV's and Formula Junior... and some Caterhams.  There is an outside possibility (I'm told) that some of the Caterhams will make it past the end of the first lap :blink:

 

Anyone interested, let me know +++

Well, that was fun! Started 14th, finished 12th :grin:

Held it all together despite it being incredibly wet at the start - we had a torrential downpour just when we were meant to assemble, so you can imagine how keen we were to go outside and get into an open Caterham. The rain did stop during the wait at assembly but you can imagine how wet we were by then, and the track was under standing water.

We went off to do a green flag lap to discover there was almost no grip off the start line, Redgate & Old Hairpin were very slippy, with loads of spinners at both & up the hill. It gradually dried during the race so was almost full throttle by the end, but all the cars were twitchy everywhere all through the race.

Great fun... :roflmao:

And no damage +++

Tomorrow: 1400 start, live on Motors TV!

True respect to the whole field in patently's race for (almost) all coming back in one piece.

Some impressive grids of Caterhams and lots of interesting historic stuff here this weekend.

Worth a watch on Motors if you can't get here to see it in the flesh.

Just one warning if you are thinking of coming... it is fecking FREEZING!

All done, driver & car both fine. Started 14th, finished 14th after non-stop battling. Was significantly higher during the first half. Fastest lap during the race was a personal best for this track. Great fun. Exhausted!

Sorry for those that tuned in, apparently I never appeared on screen :roflmao:
